    Posted: 15/September/2017 at 11:05
I received yesterday my form S1 to register for state healthcare as an official pensioner.

I know I have to take it to a regional social security office, but I cannot figure out which one of the many addresses it is.

So, can anyone tell me (a) which office I must go to and (b) whether this is by appointment only as I can see that some offices can only be visited by appointment.

Thanks in advance.

Job done, painless, fairly quick and no need to make an appointment although you can do so if you wish.

Arrived at 1400hrs opening time this afternoon, got my ticket. I was seen at 1435, the process took about 15 minutes and I was out the door in time for my bus at 1500.

I now have to wait for the Faro office to process my Cartão Utente for which I will get a note to collect it ´in some days'.

I was only asked for my 'residencia' as proof of identity. If you can make a decent copy and take it with you, along with the original, that will speed things up a bit. No waiting for the copier. You don't need anything else other than residencia if you have it.

Otherwise passport (copy also a good idea) plus utility or IMI bills to provide proof of address.
